- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 pork tenderloins (3/4 - 1 pound each), trimmed
- Coarse salt and ground pepper
- 1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Season pork with salt and pepper; transfer to skillet and cook, turning, until browned all over, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover skillet; cook pork, turning occasionally, until an instant-read thermometer registers 150 degrees. 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer pork to a plate, cover with aluminum foil, and let rest 10 minutes (reserve skillet with juices).
To juices in skillet, add mustards, and sour cream, and any accumulated juices from resting pork; whisk over medium heat until heated through (do not boil). Add water, if sauce is too thick.
Slice pork thinly and serve with pan sauce.
